PAPISS Demba Cisse is among the Newcastle United substitutes at the KC Stadium this afternoon.

The striker returned from African Cup of Nations duty yesterday in time to link up with his team-mates for the club’s Premier League game against Hull City (12.45pm kick-off).

Cisse’s Senegal were knocked out of the competition in Equatorial Guinea on Tuesday night.

Defender Mike Williamson comes in for the injured Paul Dummett in central defence, and forward Sammy Ameobi replaces Yoan Gouffran, who is on the bench.
